heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. gov

was to the economy as well. >> reporter: right. and white house press secretary jay carney emphasized you're going to hear the president continue to talk about the economy while they try to troubleshoot given this rocky rollout of the president's health care website. i think, tamron, in terms of what you're seeing in those numbers that you just mapped out in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, it really shows an accumulation of setbacks for this administration. everything from syria to questions over the nsa and of course the latest over the health care rollout. what's interesting, though, if you look at how the nation is viewing health care specifically, that hasn't changed all that much, tamron. our poll shows that 37% see the law as a good idea versus 47% who see it as a bad idea. that is down slightly from the 38% who saw it as a good idea and 43% who saw it as a bad idea in the previous poll. now, i think the administration has time to turn some of the president's approval rating numbers around. that's going to depend on this website working by the end of november, as
